ACC Barnstorming Tour stops in New Bern

Posted: Updated:
NEW BERN, N.C. - It was an ACC basketball fans paradise at Epiphany School in New Bern on Friday as seniors from our state's biggest colleges stormed into town.

From Michael Jordan to Tyler Hansbrough, all the greats participate in the ACC Barnstorming Tour. Back in the day, Eastern North Carolina native Phil Ford even took part in the event. Tonight he was back, this time as a coach.

Ford, from nearby Rocky Mount, got the biggest ovation during introductions. When the game tipped off the spotlight moved over to the ACC seniors.
North Carolina's Leslie McDonald, Duke's Josh Hairston and Tyler Thornton, NC State's Jordan Vandenburg and Travis McKie from Wake Forest were some of the notables on hand.

The seniors played a pick up game against a group of players from local high schools, then they participated in a dunk contest and 3 point competition.

Coach Phil Ford says it's truly a unique experience. For that interview as well as highlights of the game watch 9 On Your Side at 11:20.
